    provided all the ice is below the water level, so the mass is still the same, but it is above water level, will add to the mass of water.

    make Sg float above water makes more sense than building seawall. water how high oso still above sea level.

    Apart from green house effect which cause the rise of the water level, what abt those sinking and dumping of aircraft carrier, tanks etc... into the sea? Wouldn't those also cause the water level up? Those oil tanker which sink due to accident, also might have impact on the water level too. I think although not much but time over time, a bit add up to a lot. By the time the water level cover sg, we already become ashes long time already, haha!
    Only Sony device mostly, haha!
